Continental Airlines Inc. of Denver, Colorado, introduced DC-3s on scheduled services in 1945, retaining them until Continental Air Services was formed in September 1965 and operated a total of 26 of the type during that period. The Corgi model depicts N25673 (construction number 2213), which was never an original Continental DC-3, but was originally delivered to American Airlines in May 1940, then flown by several other U.S. airlines. It was last used by Provincetown Boston Airlines until being withdrawn from use in 1983. After a period of storage, in 1989, it was restored and painted in the colours of Continental Airlines as a reminder of the 'Golden Era' in air travel and currently flies tourists and enthusiasts on pleasure flights throughout the USA.
